About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Architecting a global identity.

ABOUT ME

I was born in 1987 in Aracaju city, located on the sunny northeastern coast of Brazil. Although my name's origins mix Italian etimology with a Russian hero's nickname, my roots are 100% Brazilian, albeit it is said nobody in Brazil is fully native from its lands - we always have a curious History about our ancestors.I hold a Bachelor degree in International Relations, meaning that all my life since 2005 has been connected to global issues in a gamma of diverse fields (I am currently finishing my PhD in Political Science and my second undergraduate major in Mechanical Engineering). I am constantly eager to learn about other cultures and peoples, and am never satisfied with the idea of just "touring" around cities and countries. For me traveling is about immersing myself in the culture, trying to understand the entangled idiosyncrasies that define a given society. Hence, I display a profoundly curious nature, always challenging my knowledge and worldview.Finally, I am very open-minded, self-confident and diplomatic.

PHILOSOPHY

"An answer is always the part of the road that is behind you. Only questions point to the future."

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I've traveled with full abadon around Eastern Europe, Iceland, South Africa and now Australia.

Teach, Learn, Share

I really want to learn from everyone, specially about his/her personality, culture, experiences. As I have been working with social projects about tolerance, I consider it a pillar in my life, specially the idea of living diversity.

What I Can Share with Hosts

Since my first trip to Barcelona, I've become famous for my Brazilian Shrimp Soup (Moqueca de Camarão), so I could easily cook that (or any other dish) to my hosts.

Countries I’ve Visited

Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bulgaria, Colombia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, Russian Federation, Slovakia, South Africa, Spain, Ukraine, Uruguay

Countries I’ve Lived In
